So Softly Birthday PP189

I decided last night to play another line in Nance's Tic-Tac-Toe challenge at The Paper Players. This time I picked the top line across: Birthday, any punch or die and ribbon or twine. The colours featuring are Pool Party and Coastal Cabana. There's a touch of Crisp Cantaloupe, So Saffron and Pistachio Pudding in the water coloring of a floral image from So Very Grateful, stamped in Stazon. The second size of Deco Labels Collection was used to cut the image out. Originally I cut the size larger in Coastal Cabana too, but it was too large and overwhelming, so I tried the Ruffled Ribbon in the same shade - perfect. The Pool Party embossed layer has used the Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder, so classy!

Even the bow, tied with Pool Party Seam Binding Ribbon turned out well. Finally, three Basic Jewels pearls in flower centres and a 'happy birthday' from Sketched Birthday.

Have a fantastic Friday!
